Chippewa Forest tree headed to D.C. next year: Tree to be selected next spring, serve as 50-foot diplomat for Minnesota
CASS LAKE -- The Chippewa National Forest will supply the 2014 Capitol Christmas Tree for the first time in more than 20 years.
Starting next month, workers will comb Chippewa to form a list of trees they think are up to par, and officials from the main office of the U.S. Forest Service will help elect a tree to go to Washington, D.C., in the spring.
